What is the AFOQT?
The Air Force Qualifying Test, or AFOQT, is an exam that assesses your ability to become a pilot, navigator, or officer in the U.S. Air Force. The test is used to select candidates for officer commissioning programs.
What’s on the AFOQT?
The AFOQT contains 12 sections of multiple choice questions. Sections are: verbal analogies, arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, math knowledge, instrument comprehension, block counting, table reading, aviation information, general science, rotated blocks, hidden figures, and self-description inventory.
How is the AFOQT scored?
The AFOQT is scored using composite scores. Certain sections make up the five composite scores: pilot, nav tech, academic aptitude, verbal, and quantitative. Scores are scaled into percentiles based on others who took the test. There are minimum composite scores that much be attained in order to qualify for each position. Check your desired position for your minimum required composite score.
Who takes the AFOQT?
Anyone who wants to become an officer, pilot, or navigator in the U.S. Air Force must first take the AFOQT and meet minimum score requirements.
Should I prep for the AFOQT? And how much?
The AFOQT is extensive and determines your eligibility for officer, pilot, or navigator positions in the Air Force. Therefore, it is important to be familiar with the content in order to prepare yourself for these exams. While everyone is different, Peterson’s recommends at least 6 weeks of preparation for test day.
How do I register for the AFOQT?
If you are enrolled in an Air Force ROTC program, you will be required to take the test. If you are not, go to the Air Force website to locate a recruiter in your area, who will guide you through the process.
